The Cannon

The Cannon

Teslaguy
This is the device that the Torrilian Empire always uses to blow up individual planets. Here's how it works: the Cannon is aimed at the planet to be destroyed. Then the fusion reactor reactor powers the electromagnet which hurls a large magnetic capsule through the Cannon. Just before the capsule reaches the end of the Cannon, the power is automatically shut off. By this time it is traveling at a reasonable fraction of light speed, from 0.75c to 0.95c. When this capsule strikes a planet, the incredible force rips any molten rock off of the inner core. Most rock planets have a core that is hot enogh to be vapor, but the pressure is so great that it is solid. When this pressure is released, the core explodes violently, turning whatever is levt of the planet into vapor. This vapor soon cools, and it condenses into a solid, leaving a cloud of dust several hundred times the size of the planet in its place. The Empire built three of these, and another was built at their outpost in the Milky Way. #cannon #destruction #empire #evil #ship #superweapon #teslaguy #torrilian #UAC #weapon
